Subject: entertaining Q&A
50%-75% of the audience members in this discussion session cross over the fine line between broad-minded and kooky (to generally entertaining effect).

Fascinating tip toe on the tight rope of desire for expungement.
If you could ask William Burroughs one question what would it be?
Listening to this dialouge opens Burroughs up as a gentle conversationalist and master of nagual.
"hmmm"

Subject: Really entertaining!
This is a rather entertaining question and answer session with Mr Burroughs. There is such a wide array of topics covered, theres bound to be something of interest to everyone.
His expansive intellect, and background make him one of the most interesting people I've ever heard.

There is an annoying little man in the audience who asserts himself several times in a very confrontative way, and it's amusing to hear how Mr Burroughs handles him. The heckler finally shows his colors when he accuses Mr Burroughs of getting the word 'endocrine' and 'endorphine' mixed up. It's pretty funny.

Very worth listening to!
